induction motor

An induction motor is a type of motor that is used in many machines and appliances. It works by using an electric current that creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field then induces an electric current in the rotating parts of the motor, causing the motor to spin. The induction motor is not connected to an external power source, so as the motor spins it creates its own electric current to keep running. This type of motor is very efficient and reliable, and it is used in things like air conditioners, fans, washers, and dryers.
